The 21st Annual HANMI Charity Classic Golf Tournament will be held on July 15, 2023, at LaoLao Bay Golf & Resort west course. 

“The Hotel Association of the Northern Mariana Islands is excited to announce the return of our annual tournament in June,” said HANMI chair Ivan Quichocho. “As the biggest collective employer in the Marianas tourism industry, HANMI continues to organize this tournament each year so we can give back to our non-profits and other organizations who help make The Marianas is great place to live, work, and visit. We’re very grateful for the support of our sponsors and players last year that allowed us to donate $10,000 to Northern Marianas Technical Institute and make additional donations to other community organizations. It’s going to be another great tournament this year.” 

The tournament will be open to the first 144 paid registrants. Registration forms will be available next month at Laolao Bay Golf & Resort for payment. 

“The HANMI golf tournament is one of the most highly anticipated tournaments of the year, and each year we aim to improve on the last,” said tournament committee chair Juko Ishikawa, who returns for an unprecedented second year in row as chairman. “This year we have the expertise of old timers and new people and ideas coming together in the committee, and we’re moving quickly on planning for June.” 

The tournament’s popular blackjack double Peoria format will return. The early bird tournament fee is $150 and includes optional play this year, as well a green fee and the awards luncheon. The fee increases to $170 after the early bird deadline on July 2 at 5pm. Option play will include accurate drive (hole No. 9) and four chances for nearest to the pin (holes No. 3, 7, 13, and 17). Showtime is 6am and the tournament will start at 7am.
